Do the power seat tracks sit higher than the manual tracks or are they the same height from the base to where it mounts to the seat bottom?

Manual track measures 5" from bottom base to top of bars that connect the tracks together.

I swapped out my Manual Cloth Caprice 60/40 bench seat years ago to Power Rails with Bonneville Seats. Pretty sure the rails dimensionally (height wise) are the same although the power rails go up/down so it may not matter. :wink2:

I do remember that the Black Plastic Covers for the Rails where they bolt to the floor are different so be sure to grab those too if you are swapping rails.

The power tracks can move up and down, so the question is not relevant. They will move down further, and up further than the manual tracks.

It's relevant since I'm doing a seat swap from a newer Impala and seen it done but with power tracks. I didn't think the height would be different but figured it would be worth asking here to confirm sonde I'm using my manual tracks for now. Although I am on the hunt for power tracks.

Then there is no answer to your question, because the power tracks can move up and down, so they can be at any height that you want within the parameters of the unit. Install the seats, and as long as you do not hit your head on the roof, you are OK until you get the power tracks. While you are getting the tracks, get the cross car harness from the same car. You will need it to install the seats.
